    Chicago, Ill. ? Detroit spoiled UIC?s Midwestern Collegiate Conference home opener, erasing a 10-point second half deficit en route to a 81-73 victory over the Flames Thursday night at the UIC Pavilion.

    The Flames (6-10, 1-2 MCC), who led 36-30 at the break, extended their lead to 10 (53-43) with 12:49 remaining in the contest on a jumper from Melea Clark. The Titans roared back, though, going on a 15-2 run over the next four minutes, eventually taking the lead, 58-55, on a three-pointer from Tia Winters.

    The two teams exchanged the lead five times over the next five minutes, but after a Kimberly Henry basket put the Flames up 67-66, Detroit reeled off seven unanswered points to take the lead for good, 73-67.

    The Titans (11-4, 2-1 MCC) shot a blistering 62% (16-26) in the second half and converted 7-of-12 three-pointers in the period to key its comeback.

    Senior Carrie Banks led four Detroit players in double figures with 20 points. UDM?s Molly Petermen recorded a double-double with 18 points and 11 rebounds.

    The loss spoiled another strong offensive showing from UIC?s Kimberly Henry. The junior scored a game-high 21 points and is now averaging 21.7 ppg in MCC play. Melea Clark and Jaysie Chambers each added 13 points for the Flames, while Amanda Bartz tallied a career-best 11 rebounds.
